2012 NBA Playoffs: Monday's First-Round Open Thread

Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

Over the weekend the Knicks staved off elimination, the Mavericks weren't so lucky, and the Bulls, Nuggets and Hawks were put on the brink of elimination. The first round has gone down largely as planned with the exception of the Bulls being decimated by injuries. But for most of these series round 2 is right around the corner.

Read Detroit Bad Boy's official Eastern Conference and Western Conference playoff previews and laugh about how wrong we'll probably get it.

So what does tonight's games have in store for us?

San Antonio Spurs vs. Utah Jazz -- TNT (8 p.m.)

Spurs lead 3-0

The veteran Spurs look to close out the young Jazz. Does anyone have any reason to think this one won't be a sweep?

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Los Angeles Clippers -- TNT (10:30 p.m.)

Clippers lead 2-1

This might be the most exciting series of the playoffs. Of course, these close games are brought on by the deficiencies in the two teams as opposed to two heavyweights slugging it out. The Grizzlies had an epic collapse in game 1, the Clippers shot 13-30 at the free-throw line in Game 2 and the Grizzlies couldn't take advantage because they blew another double-digit lead in the fourth quarter.
